We all have people we look up to. Whether they’re movie stars, rock stars, presidents, athletes, or even journalists, media has a special way of helping celebrities create a special connection with their fans.

We put together this gallery of some of the losses that hit us really hard. All of these people lived their lives, as Elton John sang, “like a candle in the wind.”
